Frozen Turkey? How to Properly Thaw a Turkey

HOW TO THAW A TURKEY

How to Properly Thaw a Frozen Turkey

Safely thawing a turkey is one of the most important steps in your meal prep.

  • Refrigerator thawing is preferred and the least labor-intensive but requires more time.
  • Cold water thawing takes less time but requires more attention.

Regardless of which method you choose, never thaw a turkey at room temperature. If you’re running low on time, try a Fresh Whole Turkey—they’re just as delicious and require little prep.

WAYS TO THAW

Frozen Whole Turkeys and Frozen Whole Turkey Breasts need to be thawed before cooking. For the best results, follow one of these methods:

REFRIGERATOR THAWING

  • Thaw breast side up, in an unopened wrapper on a tray in the fridge (40 degrees F or below).
  • Allow at least 1 day of thawing for every 4 lbs.
  • Keep turkey in original wrapper and place on tray.
  • Use within 4 days after thawing.

COLD WATER THAWING

  • Thaw turkey breast side down, in an unopened wrapper, with enough cold water to cover your turkey completely.
  • Change water every 30 minutes and if turkey cannot be completely covered, rotate every 30 minutes to keep the thawed turkey chilled.
  • Estimate a minimum thawing time of 30 minutes per lb.
